CCNA Certification Overview

The CCNA Certification is the entry level certification that Cisco offers to certify new network engineers. It is the prerequisite for almost all other Cisco certifications. To get CCNA certified, you must pass one computer-based exam, or you can take two exams covering the same total material, but each one exam only covers roughly half the topics.
The exam comprises of multiple choice questions, as well as drag & drop questions, and even actual Cisco equipment simulations (in scenarios).
The exam focuses on testing the candidate's skills, as well as their knowledge. The exam's topics can be found on Cisco's official website www.cisco.com/go/ccna. You will need to register to the cisco website to view the exam topics, as well as the exam details.
The CCNA covers in general Routing and Switching concepts, basic Cisco equipment configuration skills, as well as basic security and management skills.
Cisco offers many certifications, for varying levels of expertise, and on several "paths". Paths are concentrations that networks engineers take in their careers. Examples of such paths are Routing & Switching, Voice over IP, Data Center, Security, and many more. Cisco explains the dependencies of all the certifications, and all the paths in a convenient pdf, located on cisco's website.
